Oil monitor

I don't think my Ram has an oil life monitor, and I'm sure to have violated every known recommended oil change interval. Last change was 19 months ago at the dealer using full synthetic, but it's...

Blind spots

Sure do have blind spots with quad cab and camper topper. Though I am checking very carefully, I still find that many people will walk right behind a backing out truck,...especially at wallymarts. Of...

Non pickup owners

I do believe the great majority of pickup owners use their trucks for simple transportation most of the time. One thing for sure though is that when you need a truck, nothing else quite meets that...

OIC and warm ups

It's difficult for me to reach even 3k miles in 18 months time. I use only oem full synthetic and filters. I always make sure temp reaches full operating range and enough time to burn off...

3/4 vs ton

OK, so I'm way out of my league, knowledge and otherwise regarding heavy duty Rams as I drive a 3.7 v-6. But I'll stick my nose in anyway.
My first thoughts are, do you truly need anything more...

100 mph

If a Hemi can't surpass 100 mph, then something is wrong. Even my little unmodified 3.7 -v6 is still climbing at 95.

Sirius radio complaints

I often warn against accepting Sirius Radio's 6 month low priced deals, and it appears to be well warranted. Just do an internet search for complaints on Sirius and see for yourself. For example, I...

Sirius

Yep, Sirius keeps trying to lure us holdouts back. Great music and I always enjoy that freebee, but won't be signing up.

Cleaning up

What's the best way to clean the gap between the cab and a bed cover ?
My bed cover matches the height of the cabin rooftop and not much room in between. Can't/won't take the cover off, but only so...

3.21 ratio

I believe you'd be going the wrong way with the 3.21. That's 10 % lower than 3.55, if that's what's in your Ram. You'd need a lot more throttle to maintain your driving style and most likely never...

backpressure

True or not, I've always heard that reducing backpressure results in a leaner fuel mixture. With a greater percentage of air to gas during the combustion cycle, higher temps are created and over some...

manual and diesels

Yeah Huntergreen and Thunderhorse, I'll have to agree with you now that most folks who buy heavy trucks with a diesel (especially the Cummings) are going to want to swap gears themselves. A smaller...

Men and their Rams

Chrysler Corporation had long been a style setter. The Dodge truck had always been a very distant 3rd to Ford and Chevy, but when they started putting that big tall macho grill on, the guys came...

auto vs. stick

With today's modern vehicles, there is no practical reason for choosing a manual transmission, other than "...you just like to shift". Whenever you trade that manual in, you'll get less for it. If...

3.7 Ram

While I think your 3.7 would last for a long time yet to come, in your place I'd be for a quick sale and go looking for a used truck that's already in good drivable condition. Here is why:

It does sound like you've had more than your fair share of problems for a 2011 Ram. Using USD and miles, your warranty cost converts to $4267 for 124k miles. You have 31k miles or the 1 1/2 years...

Backing up

Thanks guys, I see your point and makes sense now. Guess I'll just have to get a running go from where it's flat and not stop until I get where I'm going.
